Not-Joe the Not-Plumber leaves the GOP

From Crooks and Liars: Even Joe The Plumber Is Sick Of The GOP, Announces He's Leaving The Party
Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, tells TIME he's so outraged by GOP overspending, he's quitting the party — and he's the bull's-eye of its target audience.

And all I can think is "ABANDON SHIP!", as member by member the GOP implodes. I've been thinking it since the election occurred and shared it with people I know - and now I'm going to say it here. The GOP is going to split up into several parties before too long. I may end up being wrong, but for the moment, I'm going to put my money on that.

Right now the GOP is apparently not 'pure' enough for folks like Not-Joe, and too way out wacky rightwing for anyone who leans moderate. They're hemorrhaging their base from both sides, not a good position for them to be in.
